11th attacks at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> and it's important to remember what susan said was based on the information that had been given to every senior official in our administration, and she made very clear in her appearances that the information was subject to change as more facts were gathered and analyzed by the intelligence community. and look, as is often the case, our understanding evolved over time. and we've done our best to keep the american people and the congress informed. that was her goal, that was her mission and she should not be criticized for doing exactly that. >> that, of course, comes in direct conflict with what general david petraeus, the director of the cia, told the committee in the senate where he said they knew immediately after the attack, the next day, that it was, in fact, an attack launched by al qaeda. now, speaking to reporters in ireland on one of her last trips as secretary of state, hillary laughed off questions about a potential presidential run in 2016, saying she's just too busy with her current job to think long term. >> i'm right

to the fallout from the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. at yesterday's hearing, senator john kerry who is widely expected to be nominated as the next secretary of state said congress should share some of the blame for what happened in libya. >> i want to be crystal clear about something else. congress also bears some responsibility here. congress has the power of the purse. >> for years, we have asked our state department to operate with increasingly lesser resources to conduct essential missions. and because of the gridlock and excesses in the senate and congress itself, we have not even been able to pursue the regular order of authorizing legislation. adequately funding america's foreign policy objectives is not spending. it's investing. >> republican senator bob corker countered that the state department was notution its existing resources efficiently. >> secretary clinton just sent up a notification to congress asking for $1.3 billion. why did she never ask for any notification or change of resources to make sure benghazi was secure? >> we are in a situation where th
